You want harmony but you experience divorce or breakup, self-doubts, anxiety, anger, lack of confidence, loss.
Do you sometimes ask yourself: I feel angry, disappointed, or depressed. What can I do? I tried everything, nothing works in the long term. Why are my relationships so unfulfilling? During sessions, you are guided to discover the parts of your Self that are in conflict. They have conflicting goals, perspectives, and beliefs. Those "parts" often pull you in opposite directions - "I want to eat, but I also want to lose weight" for example. Then you criticize yourself for not being more responsible, productive, etc... Get to understand why they pull you in opposite directions and how to negotiate with them.

I work with adults who are at a turning point: a death, a divorce, job loss, illness.
Are you looking for help to sort out sad, hopeless, angry or confused feelings? Perhaps you have struggled for a long time, or perhaps a crisis in your life has overwhelmed your usual ability to cope. Each person needs something different from therapy, such as support in rocky times, new ideas about unsatisfactory relationships, exploration and clarification of difficult life situations, or encouragement to reach for joy and purpose in life. My approach to our work together will be custom-fit to your hopes, your concerns, your goals, your life.

Divorce Therapists
The dissolution of a marriage is almost always an upsetting event, at the very least marked by disappointment and the loss of dreams and expectations.

A divorce therapist in Palo Alto can help you by exploring the struggles you’re facing, identifying whether or not those problems can be resolved, creating a realistic picture of what life would look like after divorce, and how your children could be affected and protected. In the process of answering these questions, a divorce therapist helps you work towards acceptance and forgiveness.
